'So why aren't we making real grilled cheese?" said chef Marc Vetri, who was visiting our after-school cooking class. "Well, we're going for something healthier," I said. Baked whole-wheat pitas stuffed with cheese and homemade tomato soup - a reinvention of the classic pairing. "You think these are healthy?" he said, grabbing the pitas and reading off the offensive ingredients: preservatives, enzymes, gluten. "So, what kind of bread should I buy in a grocery store?

* THE NEIGHBORS. 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, 6 ABC. TOKS Olagundoye studied for years to play an extraterrestrial living in New Jersey. She just didn't know it. One of the stars of ABC's "The Neighbors," Olagundoye - whose first name rhymes with "jokes" and is short for Olatokunbo - was educated in her native Nigeria, in England and in the United States. She also was schooled by Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey. " "I watched three seasons of it, fully enjoyed it, then I didn't enjoy it. I stopped," she said of the "reality" show that "The Neighbors" satirized earlier this season, as Olagundoye's character tried to fit in with a group of human females by adopting a "Housewives" persona.

* AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM. 10 p.m. Wednesday, FX. THE RESET button is Ryan Murphy's friend. He should use it more often. Murphy, whose "American Horror Story" anthology enters its second season Wednesday with "Asylum," a show set in a time and place far removed from the California "murder house" where common sense and subtlety went to die, is not a writer who believes in holding back. We know this from "Nip/Tuck," from "Glee," from "The New Normal. " We even know it from "The Glee Project," the Oxygen competition whose showcasing not just of genuine talent but of Murphy's mercurial approach to casting makes it one of television's best (and most infuriating)

"I normally try not to do comedies, but it's a dramatic comedy, a drama with a comedic edge. There seem to be two different types of comedies that exist these days. I thought, 'Let's go do it,' " he said. United States of Tara , which airs at 10:30 p.m. Mondays, stars Toni Collette as a suburban wife, mother, and troubled host to multiple personalities.

Out in Beverly Hills, the networks are showcasing their new series for the nation's TV critics (which is sort of like parading your kids through a bears' cave). The funniest moment of this annual donnybrook so far came when NBC trotted out its Thursday-night comedy queens past and present, announcing that Jerry Seinfeld will appear on the season opener of Tina Fey's 30 Rock on Oct. 4. Sarcasm filled the air. "I think it's going to be so refreshing for me to be playing myself on a show that has nothing to do with neurotic, dysfunctional New York characters," said Seinfeld.
